During my last quarter at FIDM (Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising), each student was asked to create our own fashion designer's collection.  This project demonstrated my ability to conduct and adapt seasonal research for color, fabric, trim and individual style.  By applying my technical illustrator skills, I created styles that were not only thematic, but viable to the brand and customer.

Each section below reflects the effective application of trend and theme.  Specific colors are used to demonstrate forecasting for future seasons.  Therefore, carefully selecting the fabric weights, fiber content, and construction are imperative to the portfolio. Also provided are coordinated merchandising outfits in the collection to illustrate cohesion.
